The National Shrine of The Tumbes in the extreme north of Peru offers two tourist routes for visitors who choose to enjoy nature and learn about the flora and fauna of the protected area during the long Easter holiday.
Vicuña Edgar, head of the sanctuary, said it is a specialized and conventional route. In the first case we can learn about the island’s natural attractions like the Matapalo and the dry forest sector, while the second allows visitors to tour the area Boca Capone, the estuary Zarumilla and others who harbor a wide range of species such as snails, mollusks and birds.
He said the entrance fees vary, depending on the routes to follow. These range from three to 20 soles (there are different rates for children, students and adults).
The specialist said that during Easter week expect to receive about 300 tourists, considering that the daily capacity is 80 people maximum.
“We have a capacity of 80 visitors per day to avoid damaging the biodiversity of the mangrove.”
He informed that so far this year have reached about 600 tourists, a figure lower than last year when they arrived between 800 and 820 visitors, due to torrential rains.
